Beccles Town are on the look-out for a new manager following the departure of Gaven Tipple.

Tipple has left to join Thurlow Nunn Premeir Division side Kirkley & Pakefield – and goes with Beccles’ best wishes.

In a statement, Beccles chairman Andy Woodcock said: “Following a fantastic season with us the chance to step up in leagues with KPFC is a great opportunity for Gaven and not one to miss.

“He leaves the club with our very best wishes and sincere thanks for the brilliant job he has done in bringing the team within one point of promotion.”

Beccles finished the Anglian Combination Division One campaign in third place, just behind Scole United, who gained promotion to the top flight.

The club will now advertise the post of manager and are expecting plenty of interest from within and from outside the club.

“We have come a very long way in this first season as one big club and the chance to head up the first team in such a progressive club next season is a tempting challenge for the right candidate,” continued Woodcock.
